Cognitive Learning Approaches Through E.S.L. Content Areas with Career Exploration Strategies (Project CALA) served 200 students in its second year of funding. The project offered students of limited English proficiency opportunities to develop cultural and cognitive skills necessary for success in school and work through two major components: classroom instruction in mathematics, science, social studies using English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) methodologies; and community-based internships. It operated at International High School on the LaGuardia Community College (New York) campus. The project met all its instructional objectives and its noninstructional objectives in attendance, dropout prevention, and postsecondary education. It was not possible to measure achievement of the parental involvement component due to lack of data. The program's strength is seen in its dual focus, which allowed students to progress academically while preparing them for careers by providing hands-on experience. (MSE)
